The European Commission proposed a new EU programme “Creative Europe” dedicated to the cultural and creative sectors as of 2014, which was discussed by the European Parliament and the member states (Culture Council). With the EU Parliament’s refusal to agree on the proposed multi-annual financial framework, the budget for the proposed programme is still under discussion. The final agreement between EU Parliament and member states on the programme will most likely only occur once a budgetary agreement has been made.
Ann Branch will give an up-date on the current programme negotiations and advise on next steps.
